Word Wrangler welcomes Gary Roe to the Festival!

Gary is an author, speaker, and grief specialist with eight books and over 500 articles in print. A former missionary and pastor, he now serves as a hospice chaplain and grief counselor for Hospice Brazos Valley in central Texas.

His book, "Teen Grief", was written to help teen navigate loss. While trying to make sense of an increasingly confusing and troubled world, teens get hit, again and again, with moves, separations, divorces, rejections, substance abuse, domestic violence, sexual abuse, illness, disability, and death. They wonder "Why me?" "Is it my fault?" and "Am I going to make it?"
